Poetry and curry – that combination must be hard to beat. Simon Armitage, Roger McGough, Moniza Alvi, Daljit Nagra, Patience Agbabi, Zaffar Kunial, Kate Fox and Ian Duhig are in the star-studded lineup organised by Ikley literature festival for Poetry in the City at Bradford’s World Curry Festival, from Friday 20 June to Sunday 22 June.
